Agassi, Blake and Courier Kick Off PowerShares Series for 2014

The PowerShares Series returns next year featuring some of the biggest stars in the history of tennis. Scheduled to kick off Feb. 5, 2014, at Kansas City, Mo., the 12-city tour will provide fans the opportunity to watch these champions in action as they compete against each other in one-night tournaments.

Andre Agassi, Pete Sampras, John McEnroe, Jim Courier, Jimmy Connors, Michael Chang, Mats Wilander, Ivan Lendl, Todd Martin and Mark Philippoussis will return for competition. Recently retired James Blake and Andy Roddick will make their debuts for the upcoming season.

Agassi, Blake and Courier took part in a media call on Thursday to promote the season.

Blake expressed his excitement at joining the series after his recent retirement from the pro tour at this year’s US Open.

“My whole life on tour seemed to go by so fast. I was the young guy on tour. Before I knew it, I was the grizzled veteran. Now I’m off tour and I get to be the young guy again on this PowerShares Series. That’s exciting for me to be the young guy in any situation. It should be a lot of fun,” Blake said.
